Leftfield rap duo Armand Hammer have shared new JPEGMAFIA produced single ‘Woke Up And Asked Siri How I’m Gonna Die’.
The group’s new album ‘We Buy Diabetic Strips’ will be released on September 29th, featuring some hand-picked guests. JPEGMAFIA gets behind the boards for the duo’s new single, with his production steering the release in a distinctive lane.
‘Woke Up And Asked Siri How I’m Gonna Die’ is out now, and it finds billy woods and ELUCID working with alacrity – laid down in one take, it’s a punchy, raw example of their hyper-creative rapping.
billy woods writes…
I think that every project I’ve worked on, you are kinda waiting to make your first track that is more than the sum of its parts. Because some tracks have a dope verse and a really good beat and a great hook, and the song is really dope and that’s cool. That’s a win, for sure, but there are other songs out there. The ones where all the parts swirl in a unique orbit, building upon each other and all of a sudden the whole thing is floating. Alchemy. Base metals turn to gold, etc. That’s really the moment I’m always waiting for when I start on a new creative journey. That unmistakable signpost. On We Buy Diabetic Test Strips, there were more than a few such moments, but this was the very first one. One take and it was like, yeah that’s it.
